Southbourne is where Mr Green started.  We really do love Southbourne.  It really is a cracking place, which inevitably leads to great interest in people moving to the area looking for family homes.

It has a wonderful highstreet, even if there is now a Tesco Extra!  The butchers are top notch and so is the local green grocer.  Most properties in BH6 have only a short walk to the beach (sandy and dog walking allowed).

A 10 minute drive to the centres of either Bournemouth or Christchurch, it’s just about perfectly placed for any family.

If you’re keen on dog walking, it takes about a 30 minute brisk walk along the seafront to get to Hengistbury Head.  It’s a brilliant way to start or end the day.  Even better when you have a bit longer at the weekend.

On a Google map, it shows Southbourne as being in the heart of Hengistbury Head, which is not the case (same postcode BH6).  Seabourne Road is the main highstreet.

You can find high quality family homes ranging from £225k up to around the £700k.

Don’t expect to find a bargain too easily as competition for the good properties is fierce.  If you’re about to sell a property, or currently trying to, fill out the valuation form on the right hand side.

Take a wander down Southbourne Highstreet.  It’s pretty long.  Any left turn will take you down to the cliff top.

A few of our favourites in Southbourne.

&Tea in Southbourne is a cracking place for a cup of tea and a piece of cake. Lots of choice and a nice setting.

The Larder House produces fantastic food, the service is A1 and you will keep coming back. Always book.

Cafe Riva is another favourite. A bit of a tourist spot during the day, but come the evening, the quality of food is exquisite. The seafood taglietelle is a must try.
